4:01 pm
>> a focus on re-creating the model of columbine with adjustment that's would make it more successful. >> fox reports, what we're learning led police to move in before it was too late. and -- they had him. one of the main suspects in london's terror attack. this man with blood on his hands right after the murder of a british soldier. new word authorities had arrested him before. then he went free. in minutes, what he was doing when they picked him up the first time. also, honoring wounded warriors. president george w. bush hosting veterans for his bike ride at the ranch. >> we've got great trails out here and they're pretty tough. to know that in this case, men who had their legs blown off or had serious injuries are able to ride those trails, it is quite
4:02 pm
an experience. >> tonight one-on-one with the former commander-in-chief. we begin in oklahoma a week after 76 tornadoes ripped through america's heartland. the most powerful and deadly touching down in moore. a memorial going on right now for those affected by the disaster. as the rest of the nation mourns right along with them. 24 people lost their lives. ten of them children. the twister that hit moore rated an ef-5. the most powerful on the scale used to measure the scale of twisters. it ripped 18 miles long, flattening entire blocks of homes, two schools and a hospital. some 377 people injured. 12,000 homes damaged or destroyed. countless businesses. today president obama visited. casey is outside the first baptist church in moore. we got a look just moments ago
4:03 pm
inside that church. >> reporter: we did. i'm going to talk about that in a moment. first on president obama's visit on the ground here today. the mayor of moore, the governor of oklahoma and a handful of teachers were among those that president obama met with at the site of the form he plaza towers elementary school. because frankly, there is not much left of that school. seven children as you said, died on monday. as they were trapped inside. he also got a tour of a neighborhood that was badly damaged, getting an up close and personal look at the destruction. he also stopped by the fire station where he had the chance to shake hands of first responders and also, pass along america's could not dole engss to the families of those who lost their loved ones. >> we know moore will come back stronger from this tragedy. your mayor said that you're already printing new street signs.
4:04 pm
and i want folks affected throughout oklahoma to know we're going to be with you every step of the way. >> i've got to say his visit to moore today, getting some mixed reaction on one hand, have been, we had residents that were thankful he was here, bringing attention to the matter. but we also did talk to some residents earlier today that were a bit frustrated. as you know, the presidential security is very high when mr. obama is on the ground and you have secret service sweeps, things like that. we talked to some residents earlier who were pretty upset because of the secret service sweeps. they could not get into their neighborhoods to get some of their belongings and continue the salvage work that had to be done. but no doubt a big day here in oklahoma with president obama visiting. >> it is always an opportunity for the governors affected to get some face time with the president as they have declared disaster areas. you know, i want to walk the the tribute going on right now. >> reporter: yeah. it is starting right now.
4:05 pm
we'll take you live inside. live pictures. the first baptist church of moore. the reason why this is so significant is because this is the first time that this community has come together as a whole since this disaster. it has been a roller coaster of emotions for the residents the last six days. exhaustion, shock, anger, fear, sadness. >> how do you even deal -- >> god, faith that he will get us through all this. there's so much to talk about that i can't even find words. >> reporter: this service will not only be paying tribute to the 24 people who were killed. ten of those children.
4:06 pm
of those ten, two infants. it will also be paying tribute to the more than 300 who were injured. it will be to pray for those who lost it all. some 13,000 homes destroyed. it is hard to find one person in this community that has not been affected what happened here one week ago tomorrow. >> she was talking. it just brought right to my heart that we need to put up throughout the hour, and we will do this, casey, the red cross information for people to text. they're still going to need our help for days and weeks and months to come. on the east coast when we got hit by sandy, we understand. thank you very much. turning now to the scandals rocking our nation's capital and more calls for a special independent counsel to step in and investigate. top irs officials have admitted, that agency targeted conservative groups and others singling out hundreds of organizations for extra scrutiny.
4:07 pm
with names like tea party and patriot. they were looking for them. even now months after the irs says the practice has stopped, some groups that applied for tax-exempt status are still waiting for approval. now, some lawmakers are expressing doubts about whether the justice department can impartially handle, well, basically investigating itself. steve is live in washington. everybody seems to agree, the irs improperly targeted conservative americans. where is the major disagreement at this point? >> the two parties can't seem to agree on where to go next. whether an independent prosecutor should be named at this point. now, either way, some republicans are suggesting this is a major turning point for the president. here's a taste of that argument from the sunday talk shows. >> i think there needs to be a speedy resolution to this and i think the president is in danger of using his moral authority to lead the nation if we don't get to a resolution. >> this was as i see it, a terrible abuse of power and it
4:08 pm
has to be fully investigated. the only question is how close to his circle does this get as far as knowing about when it happened. >> senator lindsay graham said this didn't happen by accident. the tone was set at the very top. he called for a special prosecutor to investigate. but congressman darrell issa said congress can investigate on its own. democrats say there is no evidence at this point of any involvement by the president or any political motivation. they say it is the result of the high court's decision and citizens united which triggered more political spending by tax-exempt groups. >> citizens united really unleashed hundreds if not thousands of organizations seeking tax-exempt status to play in political campaigns. the law we wrote as congress said that they had to exclusively be engaged in social welfare and not politics and campaigning. so here is the irs, trying to
4:09 pm
decide whether or not these organizations really comply with the law. >> there have been three congressional hearings on this scandal so far and more expected. >> thank you very much. now to another scandal from the irs to the department of justice. senator lindsay graham is calling for a separate independent council to investigate the justice department. this time related to the doj's tracking of phone call and e-mail of fox news chief washington correspondent james rosen. as we've been reporting, the justice department confirmed for us that attorney general eric holder was involved in the decision to seek a search warrant against a fox employee rosen. senator graham said he does not believe the attorney general can investigate his own actions and says this records grab was a big government overreach. >> this is a good time to have a special council come forward or some independent group to look at it. james rosen is a lot of things
4:10 pm
but a criminal co-conspirator he is not. we're beginning to criminalize journalism. i think that should worry us all. >> this all stems from an affidavit filed. claiming it believed rosen violated the federal espionage act. the attorney general's review of this as well as the records seizure at the associated press is due in july. despite those two scandals, as well as questions over the deadly terror attack on our consulate in benghazi, libya, president obama came out late last week with a major speech on counter terrorism and national security defending his formerly top secret drone program and renewing the pledge he made before taking office. to close the detention center at guantanamo bay. critics say he is trying to shift the focus away from three scandals. peter with news now from washington.
4:11 pm
>> reporter: with scandals swirling around the white house, president obama left campus this week to give a speech at ft. mcnair where he reminded americans he wants to scale back the war on terror, close the military prison at guantanamo bay, cuba, and limit the use of drones. >> before any strike is taken, there must be near certainty that no civilians will be killed or injured. the highest standard we can set. >> reporter: that sounds like a retreat to some of the critics who say now is not the time to limit our options for dealing with terrorists. >> this is the most tone deaf president i ever could imagine. making such a speech at a time when our homeland is trying to be attacked literally every day. changing the standards of when you can go after somebody with a drone. it has to be a continuing imminent threat to american people with no chance of civilian casualties. virtually no chance. i think we're diminishing our national security infrastructure. >> other senators see the
4:12 pm
president's speech as positive and as a way to reset the nation's collective mindset after more than a decade at war. >> i'm not going to take lightly the terrorism threat against the united states. if we are constantly thinking of this in the context of war, we stand a very real risk of doing things when compromise our freedoms. >> the president's entire speech was written off by the republican chairman of the house armed services committee who said it was, quote, only necessary due to a deeply inconsistent counter terrorism policy. >> thank you. in the past quarter century, it has become one of our nation's most celebrated if not noisiest memorial day traditions. the powerful him of thousands of motorcycles roaring through the d.c. area can signal just one thing. rolling thunder is back in town. this annual motorcycle rally
